Serves: 6

vegetarian
Prep: 35 min, plus freezing overnight

Ingredients

oil, for greasing
4 Eggs
4 tbsp caster sugar
325g Mascarpone
100g nougat, chopped into small pieces
100g Raspberries
mint sprigs, to decorate

For the raspberry sauce:

200g Raspberries
2 tbsp icing sugar
1 tbsp water

Method

1. Lightly grease a loaf tin and line with cling film.

2. Separate the eggs yolks from the whites and put into two separate large bowls.

3. Add the sugar to the egg yolks and beat until smooth and fluffy.

4. Beat in the mascarpone cheese until thoroughly mixed.

5. Fold in the chopped nougat.

6. Using clean beaters, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Using a metal spoon, fold them carefully into the mascarpone mixture.
